Brain tumors and brain cancer are caused by the growth of abnormal cells in the tissues of the brain. A brain tumor is inherently serious and life-threatening because it invades the limited space of the brain cavity. However, brain tumors (even malignant ones) are not absolutely fatal, and the care team at Shaw is trained in using both radiation and chemotherapy for brain cancer treatment.

Breast cancer occurs when cells in the breast become abnormal and grow out of control, causing a wide array of breast cancer symptoms. There are two main types of breast cancer: ductal carcinoma, originating in the ducts; and lobular carcinoma, originating in the lobules of the breast. Breast cancer can be invasive or noninvasive. Invasive means that the cancer has spread outside of the ducts or lobules. Noninvasive means it has not spread and is called "in situ."

Lung cancer made up of both types is called mixed small cell/large cell cancer. And, if the cancer started somewhere else in the body and spread to the lungs, it is called metastatic cancer to the lung. Lung cancer is more common in older adults, and cigarette smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer. However, lung cancer has occurred in people who have never smoked.

Prostate cancer remains the most common non-skin cancer in men and is second only to lung cancer in its deadliness. Men older than 50, men who have a father or brother with prostate cancer, and/or men who are African-American are at greater risk and should consider an evaluation. Prostate cancer can be detected through either an abnormality on your rectal exam or elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in a blood test. 
 
Many things can cause increased PSA or an abnormal exam, and a prostate cancer diagnosis can only be confirmed with a biopsy, which is performed in a physician's office. If prostate cancer is found, treatment depends on many factors. For patients with disease that seems to be in the prostate only, there are many treatment options, and Shaw offers the full range, including radical prostatectomy and cryosurgery.
 
Shaw Regional Cancer Center's 5-year prostate cancer survival rate is 95.9%, which is 8% above the national average. Shaw collaborates with Rocky Mountain Urology to develop the right treatment plan for each patient.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and usually forms on the head, face, neck, hands and arms. Skin cancer is more commonly seen in people who spend a lot of time in the sun or have been sunburned, have a family history of skin cancer, are over the age of 50 or have a fair complexion.
 
Because skin cancer treatment is more likely to work well when cancer is found early, suspicious skin markings and any changes in the skin should be seen by a doctor. If not treated, some types of skin cancer cells can spread to other tissues and organs.
